    That's totally understandable. Let's say you may lose some regs but you'll gain new ones who are willing to pay your new rates but you'll never know unless you do it because guys won't tell you they're willing to pay more.

    I REALLY needed to hear all this great insight. I recently upped my rates to $6.99/$9.99 The first weekend went great actually, but this weekend has been scary slow. My earnings are pretty abysmal, BUT the ratings analysis shows I'm actually up hourly over the last couple weeks. So I'm resisting the urge to touch this. And I love fetish shows, so the rate increase def. helps with that.

    What if you're like me & don't really offer too much fetish stuff & mostly just do vanilla? Would you ladies still suggest being 7.99 - 9.99 a min in exclusive for that? I've been back & forth on my rates however I don't really cam on there much anymore bc I have other well paying eggs right now.

    I was afraid of the same thing, and between getting pregnant, not getting back to my original weight, and raising from 2.99/ 3.99 up to 5.99/ 9.99, I have lost all of my regulars. I did this over about 8 mos (the raises not pregnancy obviously), but I have all new regulars, many of whom are just as nice and/or nicer, but less work. My average hourly rate has gone steadily up, and now I am mostly listed in the first 2, occasionally the 3rd row (I have no geoblocks on). I have been terrified of the raises, but it has worked out really well! I am happier when I log on too, because I feel I am being paid fairly. If anyone gives you a hard time (only 2 people in 8 mos have gotten blocked by me, due to complaints about prices), something DeepThoughts advised me to do is offer a GOLD show, and I suggest videos a lot too, and sell quite a few each shift. I can only speak for my experience, but creeping them up has resulted in my average hourly rate increasing from a steady $45-$50 to a steady $80-100. That's just for each hour I stream for the week, whether I am in free chat or not. So I really want to encourage anyone who reads this to do it. You can always lower them again if it doesn't work out.

    I do have to deal with more trolls the more time I spend in free chat, but I don't hesitate to ruthlessly block. Even if they are just time wasting, because I have money to make for my family, and it's business. None of these fucks are paying our rent, and we are not hourly workers, we are commission only. Good luck. If you or anyone else wants any info on my experience I will answer honestly, I am really OCD and keep really detailed business records.

    I won't write too much because I just posted a lot of detailed info, but I would suggest it. I prefer not to do vanilla, but it seems to be all I ever do anymore, and I am really busy at 5.99/ 9.99. I don't even do anal, deep throat or any kind of taboo fantasy talk or anything, and I keep raising and staying steadily really busy. I don't do phone either.

    What I have learnt with raising/lowering prices is it's all about CONFIDENCE.

    I can imagine many of you, like me have raised your rates and had a quiet day or two and felt like shit, this is because I raised my rates.
    When it's not. When raising rates it's a long term game, something you have to monitor over months and months not days.
    But sometimes we lack confidence and then we get super tempted to lower them back down after a week, where possible try not to do this, stick it out for a month or two and see how it turns out.
    If it turns out you earn LESS then it obviously makes sense to lower them slightly.
